  Britney in most expensive ads ever
Updated 29 January 2002, 15.20
Britney Spears
Pop princess Britney Spears is to star in the most expensive adverts on TV.

Brits will apparently be paid 5.7m ($8m) by drinks company Pepsi for two ads to be shown during American Football's Super Bowl this Sunday.

1950s star


They're usually the most expensive ad slots on telly in the US because more than 80 million football fans tune in.

The first ad shows Britney wearing 1950s clothing and singing well-known songs from then to present day.

And the fans will decide which ad's to be shown second. They'll get the chance to vote on the one they want to see on the drinks company's website.

And there'll be lots of other entertainment from stars like Mary J Blige at the big final.

One highlight will be former Beatle, Sir Paul McCartney, singing Freedom the song he wrote after the 11 September terrorist attacks.
